Korean Word of the Day: What does 및 mean?

Meaning of 및

및 – and, as well as

You will often stumble upon this word when reading articles online in Korean. I would rank it as a relatively easy word to grasp both meaning and usage of. You only use it with nouns and the nouns should be related in some way. If they are related or not depends on the context. For example, books and cars are not very similar, but can still be related through context. Normally though, you’ll see more closely related nouns. Like math and literature or import and export for example.
